The great pit in the Seth region is re-visited from the closest ever distance showing on the top right of the image. Due to the unfavorable geometry, the pit is in shadow most of the times though. The image on the right, using the long exposure time, reveals the interior and the pit's wall with an interesting, dust-filled alcove.
